Amritsar, July 10

A youth was shot at in Mahnia Kumara village falling under the Kamboh police station here. The police booked over a dozen persons on charges of murder bid and other relevant sections of the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita on Tuesday.

The victim, identified as Sukhdev Singh of Bhoa Fatehgarh village, suffered bullet injury in the eye. His condition was stated to be serious. He was rushed to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital from where he was shifted to a private hospital. Though the police registered a case, the suspects were yet to be arrested.

Among those booked included Akashdeep Singh, Arshdeep Singh, Lovepreet Singh, alias Murabba, Karan, aka Shabbu, and Dana, all residents of Jethuwal village, and Shinder of Mirachak village.

Victim’s brother Hardev Singh of Bhoa Fatehgarh village told the police that he, along with his cousin Bachitar Singh, was returning home from Mahnia Kuhar village when they saw Sukhdev Singh running in the fields. The suspects, who were armed with sharp weapons and pistols, were chasing him, he said. He alleged that the suspects surrounded and brutally thrashed his brother. He said when he tried to intervene, Akashdeep fired at him. However, he escaped while a bullet hit his brother Sukhdev Singh’s eye. He said on seeing people gathering, the suspects fled from the spot. The people called 108 ambulance which rushed Sukhdev to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital, but owing to his critical condition, doctors referred him to a private hospital where he was currently under treatment, he said.

About the cause behind the incident, he said his brother had a quarrel with Akashdeep Singh a few days ago. He said respectable people of the village intervened and Akashdeep and Sukhdev reached a compromise. Nevertheless, Akashdeep kept a grudge and attacked Sukhdev, he said.

The police registered an FIR against the suspects under relevant sections of the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita. The police said efforts were on to nab the suspects.
